Victorian Bingley Police/ West Riding Constabulary (West Yorkshire) Tipstaff Truncheon With Hand Painted Decoration & V.R. Royal Cypher. Sn 13907:10 - 13907:10

The earliest record of the Tipstaff (Warrant Stick) was in the 14th century. The name derives from the early origins of Policing when Warranted Officers would apprehend a criminal with the help if necessary of a tipped staff. The staff would be made of wood or metal and were not only a means of self defence but the tips of the staffs would bear symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original Victorian era Tipstaff. The body is made of heavy wood tapered and shaped for grip and ,. The staff has beautiful hand measures 14 1/2" length. It has painted decoration featuring a Crown and Royal Cypher ‘V.R’ above ‘Bingley 1’ (Bingley is a market town in the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford, in West Yorkshire, England. In 1856 the West Riding Constabulary was formed and policed Bingley. In 1968 The West Riding Constabulary was renamed West Yorkshire Police). All of the staff’s Gold, Green and Red decoration is vivid. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 13907:10
